Oh, by the way, on the corkage fee question; they charge you to pull the cork out at the dinner table, or at the bar. Take a corkscrew (in your checked luggage) and use it to open your bottle of wine in the room.

Talking about corks, I opened a $40 bottle of Bordeaux blend recently (okay, yesterday), that had two corks in the bottle. Through skill only exhibited by a surgeon was I able to extract BOTH corks from the bottle. Dang, I'm good!
